How did we launch?
Like many great ideas, this one was born when a group of like-minded people sat around a table drinking some of our favorite local craft beer. We wondered why there wasn’t a way to easily connect local founders with mentors and resources that could help them. As we got curious, there was collaboration. There was laughter. There was problem solving. And LaunchLKN (the OG) was born.
We started as LaunchLKN with one main goal: get talented entrepreneurs, mentors, educators, and community leaders from the Lake Norman area in one place and see what happens. We believed there was an eager community looking for opportunities to share knowledge and advance entrepreneurial success in our own backyard. We held six events (beer included!) … and we listened. Our hypothesis proved true and our people were now helping us define how we should grow.
